A new Wedding Hymns album is in the early stages of recording with Tobin Wingard from Bloomington here at ZooWest Studio; we continue to explore which hymns we want to include, what solo instruments he will be playing on each song and what the arrangements might sound like, then recording some of his solos.
There are probably thousands of hymns that have been played at weddings – we’ve chosen 10-15 of our favorites that will be used often and that we’ll enjoy working on together.
Here’s the long list; a couple of these won’t make the album:
All Things Bright And Beautiful
Be Thou My Vision
Morning Has Broken
The King Of Love My Shepherd Is
What Wondrous Love Is This
All People That On Earth Do Dwell
How Great Thou Art
Fairest Lord Jesus
Come Thou Fount
This Is My Father’s World
I Need Thee Every Hour
Guide Me O Thou Great Redeemer
O Worship The King All Glorious Above
Lead Us Heavenly Father Lead Us
We may add to these when we brainstorm Friday, or in the meantime. As mentioned in a previous post, Tobin plays many instruments quite well, and I’m sure his interpretation of these wedding hymns will add some real variety and class to our wedding music offerings.
I’m aiming to finish this project by the end of June, 2011, but as with all truly creative processes, it’s hard to establish an exact timeline. That is to say – it will be done when it’s done!
